Disorder in pixels!

on: December 21, 2007, 11:39:20 pm
Every day I open my PC I go trough a complete battlefield of pixels that is eventually my pixel art folder…. I have a complete disorder in pixels, where you could find prehistoric works never to be finished…. The problem is that no matter how hard I try to organize it, I cant!!! It just keep growing!

I was wondering if others have this problem… but really… o and I am just bored right now, nothing to do…. Unless finishing my secret Santana present  :crazy:

I'm even worse. My such folder is the My Documents one I had in fact, to put all the older random pieces of art in a subfolder called 'loose art' because I strained the hard disk whenever I entered My Documents because it tried to catalogue a huge amount of files.

my old computer was like that. I'd open my art folder and the poor thing would start making these horrible noises as it tried to generate the hundreds of thumbnails and images i hadnt bothered to sort x_o

I think I've got three folders in completely different places around my hard drive..

Right now, the best order I have is WIPs on the desktop and completed work, simply in a folder called 'Art'.

I like putting things in folders or lists or suchlike... i couldn't stand having one folder with all my pixelart in it, there's simply too much stuff and it would be such a pain to find anything.

I have (from what i can remember, since i haven't been able to access my comp in a while) a Pictures folder and then in that along with alot of other folders i have the Graphics folder and then in that along with others i have the Pixel Art folder and then in that i have 'Projects', 'Avatars', 'Collabs/Competitions' ... etc (within them there're sommor folders too).

It's awesome.  :0'
Even so i could go ahead and re-order it somewhat. I'd say it was a mess atm.

I have a folder called "art" in which I have a folder called "pixel" in which I have lots of folder such as "c64" "finished" and so on in which again I have subfolders again.

Basically I have a subfolder for every big image, because I save lots of versions and it would get very cluttered in one folder if I had all my pixelart in there.
